15. Resolutions Calling the November 3, 2020 General Municipal ElectionFile #: 3372 Claremont City Council Agenda Report TO: TARA SCHULTZ, CITY MANAGER FROM: SHELLEY DESAUTELS, CITY CLERK DATE: JUNE 23, 2020 SUBJECT: Item No: 15. Reviewed by: City Manager: TS Finance Director: AP ADOPTION OF RESOLUTIONS INITIATING THE NOVEMBER 3, 2020 GENERAL MUNICIPAL ELECTION FOR THE PURPOSE OF ELECTING TWO MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL - DISTRICT 1 AND 5 REPRESENTATIVES; AND ADOPTING REGULATIONS FOR CANDIDATES (FUNDING SOURCE: GENERAL FUND) SUMMARY Claremont is a general law city governed by a five -member City Council. The City's General Municipal Elections are held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November of even - numbered years and are consolidated with the Statewide General Election conducted by the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk. City Councilmembers are non-partisan positions elected to serve a four-year term. Terms are staggered, so that two seats are voted on during one election cycle and three seats during the next cycle. In February 2019, the City transitioned from at -large elections to a district -based election system. The by -district system divides the City into five geographic areas and creates new by -district seats on the City Council. Electoral Districts 1 and 5 will be voting at the November 3, 2020 election. Districts 2, 3 and 4 will be voting in November 2022. Each electoral district will now vote for their representative once every four years. Pursuant to the requirements of law for general law cities, the City Council must adopt certain resolutions to call a general municipal election. The City Clerk's office will serve as filing officer for the candidates, and will also work with the County of Los Angeles to coordinate and consolidate the City election with the Statewide General Election conducted by the Los Angeles County Registrar- Recorder/County Clerk. CLAREMONT Page 1 of 6 Printed on 6/18/2020 RECOMMENDATION Staff recommends that the City Council: A. Adopt A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CLAREMONT, CALIFORNIA, CALLING FOR THE HOLDING OF A GENERAL MUNICIPAL ELECTION TO BE HELD ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2020, FOR THE ELECTION OF CERTAIN OFFICERS AS REQUIRED BY THE PROVISIONS OF THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA RELATING TO GENERAL LAW CITIES; B. Adopt A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CLAREMONT, CALIFORNIA, ADOPTING REGULATIONS FOR CANDIDATES FOR ELECTIVE OFFICE PERTAINING TO CANDIDATES STATEMENTS SUBMITTED TO THE VOTERS AT AN ELECTION TO BE HELD ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2020 and direct staff to remove the City fee of $100 from the Citywide User Fee Schedule; and C. Adopt A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CLAREMONT, CALIFORNIA REQUESTING THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS OF THE COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES TO ORDER THE CONSOLIDATION OF A GENERAL MUNICIPAL ELECTION TO BE HELD ON NOVEMBER 3, 2020 WITH THE STATEWIDE GENERAL ELECTION TO BE HELD IN THE COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES THE SAME DAY; TO AUTHORIZE THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS OF THE COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES TO CANVASS THE RETURNS OF SAID GENERAL MUNICIPAL ELECTION; AND TO REQUEST THAT THE REGISTRAR- RECORDER/COUNTY CLERK OF SAID COUNTY BE PERMITTED TO RENDER FULL SERVICES TO THE CITY OF CLAREMONT RELATING TO THE CONDUCT OF SAID GENERAL MUNICIPAL ELECTION PURSUANT TO CALIFORNIA ELECTIONS CODE SECTION 10403. ALTERNATIVE TO RECOMMENDATION In addition to the recommendation, there is the following alternative: • Request additional information. FINANCIAL REVIEW The Administrative Services Department has budgeted $72,150 to conduct a consolidated November 3, 2020 General Municipal Election for two City Council district seats. The budget includes the cost for the City Clerk's office to prepare candidate nomination supplies and serve as the filing office for nomination documents, for the City to hold a candidate orientation with management staff, to publish legal notices, and to obtain services from the County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk to facilitate the election, including mailing and tabulating ballots and declaring the election results. It is unknown at this time to what degree COVID-19 will pose a threat to public health in November, and the County must begin taking action now to procure supplies, secure vote centers, enlist volunteers, and take steps to ensure that the November 3, 2020 election is held in a manner that is accessible, secure and safe. Because of this, it has been decreed by the California Governor that each eligible registered voter shall receive a vote -by -mail ballot for the November 3rd election. In- person voting opportunities will be made available but will be analyzed at the County and State level for implementation. As a result, all registered voters in the City will be receiving a vote -by -mail ballot with Federal, State, and County issues for the November 3, 2020 election. An estimated 9,981 of those voters who reside in Districts 1 and 5 will also have a City Council seat included on their ballot CLAREMONT Page 2 of 6 Printed on 6/18/2020 for which the City will incur election costs. Other financial impacts of COVID-19 remain unknown. ANALYSIS Establishment of City Council Electoral Districts and Election Schedule The November 3, 2020 election will be the first Claremont by -district election since the City transitioned from at -large elections to a district -based election system. The by -district system divides the City into five geographic areas. Members of the City Council shall be elected from Council Districts 1 and 5 beginning at the General Municipal Election in November 2020, and every four years thereafter. Members of the City Council shall be elected from Council Districts 2, 3 and 4 beginning at the General Municipal Election in November 2022, and every four years thereafter. The City Council Electoral Districts are depicted on the following map, which shall continue in effect until they are amended or repealed in accordance with law: Claremont 2019 Districting KIM N r+7,i 1 I J1 5, 2,11V B-PO't1 r, (U4L.IPf It CLAREMONT Page 3 of 6 Printed on 6/18/2020 h rwoim� by I cx:ls[ni^nw Map layers St'r °' 124a i..... w census Block W3tcr Arca Pipeline/Power Line Railroad River f Streets Claremont Pop Units iP........

The resolutions presented to the City Council for consideration are as follows: • Resolution calling for the holding of the November 3, 2020 General Municipal Election (Attachment A); • Resolution adopting regulations for candidates (Attachment B); and • Resolution requesting the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors order consolidation of the General Municipal Election with the Statewide General Election and have the Registrar - Recorder County Clerk render full election services (Attachment C). Candidacy Eligibility and Nomination Period To hold an elective office within the City of Claremont, you must be a United States citizen, 18 years or older, be a registered voter of the City, reside within the candidate specific City Council electoral district at the time the nomination paper is issued and for the duration of your term if elected. The nomination period for candidates will run from Monday, July 13, 2020 through Monday, August 10, 2020, and will be conducted by the City Clerk's office during regular business hours. Typically, if an incumbent does not file papers by this date, the nomination period is extended (pursuant to Section 10225 of the Elections Code). However, this year is different. Because all of the current Councilmembers were elected for at -large seats, the Secretary of State does not consider any sitting Councilmember to be an "incumbent" for either of the newly -created district seats. Therefore, there will be no extended nomination period for this election. July 13 - August 10 2020 Nomination Period Between these dates, candidates may obtain nomination materials and file to declare candidacy. More information related to running for office can be found on the City website November 3, 2020 election page: <https://www.ci.ciaremont.ca.us/government/elections/november-3-2020-general-municipal-election>. Candidate Statements Claremont's past practice has been to charge candidates a nominal fee to run for office (currently $100). However, a survey of surrounding cities indicates that subsidizing a candidate's expense to run for office is not a common practice. Most cities in the area pass through the actual cost of printing, translating and mailing candidates statements, which are optional, and require each candidate filing a candidate statement to pay his or her estimated pro rata share to have his or her CLAREMONT Page 4 of 6 Printed on 6/18/2020 statement included in the voter pamphlet. The estimate is an approximation of the actual cost, which varies from one election to another depending on the number of candidates filing statements. It is proposed that the City of Claremont implement the practice of charging candidates the actual cost of preparing a candidate statement, should the candidate elect to provide one. As of this writing the number of registered voters in District 1 is 5,300, and the number of registered voters in District 5 is 4,681. Based on a candidate statement with a 200 -word count limit, the estimated cost is as follows: English Only English and Spanish $400 1$800 This estimate would be collected by the City at the time of filing as a deposit. Each candidate filing a statement will then receive a bill or a refund after the election once the City receives its invoice from the County. Should the City Council approve this action by adopting the attached resolution (Attachment B), staff is also recommending the City Council direct staff to remove the filing fee of $100 from the Citywide User Fee schedule, as no filing fee would be charged by the City. RELATIONSHIP TO CITY PLANNING DOCUMENTS Staff has evaluated the agenda item in relationship to the City's strategic and visioning documents and finds the following - 2020 -21 Budget - This item meets the General Government and Administrative Services Department Work Plan Goal - GG -1- Provide a system of elected representation to develop policies that reflect community values and utilize the Council/Manager form of government to implement those policies. AS -7: Ensure compliance with all applicable laws - Government Code, Brown Act, Political Reform Act, and Public Records Act, and the Elections Code. CEQA REVIEW In accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the holding of a municipal election is not subject to environmental review. Under CEQA Guidelines Sections 15378(b)(2) and (b) (5), continued administrative activities, such as services and support necessary to conduct an election, which will not lead to a direct or indirect physical change in the environment are not CEQA projects. Additionally, pursuant to Section 15061(b)(3), CEQA does not apply to this action because there is no potential for causing a significant effect on the environment. The actions necessary to conduct an election will not have a significant effect on the environment because it will not result in or lead to a physical change in Claremont. Therefore, no additional environmental review is needed at this time. PUBLIC NOTICE PROCESS Due to the current health orders related to the COVID-19 pandemic, parts of the City's regular agenda distribution process have been suspended as public review copies cannot be placed at their regular locations due to facility closures, or limited access. The agenda and this staff report are available on the City's website. If you desire a copy, please contact the City Clerk's Office.
